Hawaiian Style Grilled Mahi Mahi
We're visiting four islands--Hawai'i, Maui, Lana'i, Moloka'i--and spending lots of time outside exploring on land and in the water. We're snorkeling with sea turtles and dolphins, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking near lava tubes, swimming, jumping off the deck of the yacht and hiking around the islands.
When exploring by skiff and kayaks in Hawaii, the aft swim deck and launch pad of the Safari Explorer is a busy place!
We get hungry.
Fresh fish and seafood are a favorite in the islands. YUM. Here's one of our favorite recipes using fresh Mahi Mahi fish in Hawaii. The fruit salsa livens up the dish with a sweet crunch--a tropical delight!
Hawaiian Fruit Salsa
½ papaya, diced
½ pineapple, diced
1 mango, diced
1 bell pepper, diced very finely
¼ c chopped chives
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste
Add all ingredients to bowl and mix together. Season to taste.
Lightly oil the grill. Heat grill. Prepare fillets with olive oil, salt and pepper. Squeeze a little fresh lemon on it too if you like. Cook 2-4 minutes on each side until done (depends on thickness). Cook skin side up first, then carefully flip. Serve each fillet with fruit salsa on top. Delicious!

We'll post more recipes from Hawaii this season. Here's more evidence of how much fun we have in the islands and why your appetite deserves to be fed.
Snorkeling is amazing in Hawaii! See tropical fish, corals, anemones, sea turtles, dolphins, sharks and other sea creatures
We often have the opportunity to paddle an outrigger canoe. Keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales. We often see them up close!
